There aren't enough words or time to convey how crucial Naropa was to my development, both as a person and as a professional. For anyone looking to grow while learning to help others, this is it.A
My experience of Naropa University was that it was an amazing place to grow, explore my mind and the world, and discover a deep love for learning, meditation, and uplifting the world through my life. It is a place where you can be yourself, find wonderful teachers, transformative courses and genuine friendships.V

Naropa University is a unique vision of education that has the potential to frustrate, but in the way that encourages development----this is because the work is personal, as it always is and will be and at Naropa that fact was never ignored. The grounding here is the environment of Buddhist meditation combined with the progressive and inclusive atmosphere. You can simultaneously critique the liberal/progressive agenda while being engaged within it. Your own personal capacity to deepen to the world is developed while learning the academic aspects---an integration of both head and heart. I remember once a professor saying that Naropa is on fire and in that fire it is so easy to get burned but more importantly it is a place to cook, bake, broil and grill the neurosis. I honesty don't know how creativity can be cultivated without an environment "on fire" with the spirit of transformation and change. I felt Naropa was a good bridge to walk one foot in the world and another in the ever deepening potential to experience one's Buddha-nature or essential spirit. It wasn't the easist of rides but I still look back at my time at Naropa as a huge component of my personal development and discernment to vocation. It was one of the greatest journeys in my formation.
